Wasn't quite sure if I liked this lamp when I finished it, but it's growing on me. Sorta inspired by a lamp at Lucky Tiki in Mission Hills. The wife hasn't seen it yet... I hope she likes it because I wired it in our bedroom (fingers are crossed).

I really like what it does to the ceiling. Way to jump in with both feet.

Thanks guys... my wife actually digs the lamp itself after all, but isn't crazy about the ceiling effect!

Here's another one I finished recently. I've always wanted to try the bamboo bottom... Ona Tiki's AMAZING lamps pushed me to go for it. This one hangs in our hallway.








Update... this lamp has migrated to the Kona Club in Oakland.

Love that hallway lamp - very cool. I gotta admit, I'm not big on the ceiling effect of that first lamp, but I love the lamp itself.

Very cool work dude

Wow - I love your lamps - they are so unique! Excellent opportunity to keep the tiki/beach hut tradition of groovy lighting going. We need someone like you down here in Australia to help deck out more Tiki Lounges, I am flat out trying to do a little of everything, tikis, bars, huts etc since the bug has bitten quite a few aussies - come on down!!

I haven't posted in any pics in a long while... Haven't really done anything out of the ordinary, but here's some lamps I finished for the Kona Club in Oaktown. Big ups to Bamboo Ben on that place!









I did try carving, and dang is it fun. Though it isn't tiki, I carved this frame for my wife for our 1 year wedding anniversary (we honeymooned in New Orleans, hence the fleur de leis). I wanna give it a go again when I get one of those "free moments." Sorry about the mushy wedding pic, by the way.

Cool lamps - again. It might be a mushy wedding photo but its in a 50s convertable with mexican blankets - the cool factor outweighs the mushiness.
